Call Our Tree Removal Experts in the Aftermath of a Storm

Tree damage caused by heavy storms is one of the most common reasons our clients call us for tree removal. Although removing a damaged tree isn’t always necessary, we recommend calling our experts if you’re unsure of the tree’s stability.

Our team will take the time to look at your tree, understand its integrity and whether it is threatening the safety of your property more broadly. If we have concerns, we’ll let you know them so you can make the right choice.

Don’t wait around when you have concerns. Storm tree damage can escalate, so let our team know if you require our assistance!

Removing Unhealthy Trees

There are many reasons why the trees on your property may be unhealthy, including:

  • Pest infestations
  • Interior decay
  • Age
  • Location

When a tree is dying or diseased, it cannot provide the benefits it usually would to your property like shade, water retention, and aesthetic appeal. An ailing tree can also affect the health of other plants on your property – so it may be in your best interest to remove it altogether.

Do I Need an Arborist for Tree Removal?

While sometimes Detroit homeowners are certain that they need or want an arborist to come to their property for tree removal services, other times it’s not so clean cut. Especially in the case of extreme weather damage, it can be hard to tell if your tree is going to make it or if it needs to go before it becomes hazardous. If any of these symptoms apply to the tree on your property, give us a call:

  • The majority of the tree is visibly damaged.
  • The tree has grown too close to power lines.
  • An abnormal amount of fungi is growing at the base of your tree.
  • The tree has started to lean and shift.

Trees may be able to live for hundreds of years, but like everything else in the world, they too have a lifespan that can end with age or injury.

A sick or damaged tree puts your friends, family, and home at risk in case it falls. When a tree becomes unhealthy, its trunk and branches become more susceptible to bad weather. If you don’t know that your tree is sick, it can look healthy. A summer thunderstorm or a bout of freezing rain can turn your apparently healthy tree into a major health hazard. You can’t predict the weather, but you can protect yourself. It’s important to contact a trained arborist to check the health of your tree.

Ensure that you stay safe by addressing any tree concerns you have as quickly as possible. Big Daves Tree Service always offers estimates. Get your questions answered by calling us today.

Tree Removal Cost

Tree removal can be a big job. Even so, many Detroit homeowners will attempt to do it themselves. We never recommend trying this. At Big Daves Tree Service, every member of our team is a certified professional with years in the field.

Tree removal is no walk in the park. There’s a lot that needs to be accounted for, and the best way to make sure it’s done quickly and safely is by investing in a professional. So, what sort of tree removal costs could you be looking at?

It really depends on what kind of work needs to be done. If the tree needs to be cut down and its branches are close to power lines the job will be a lot more complicated. If you need to remove the stump and its roots, this can also increase the overall costs. On the other hand, the job can go quickly with very few, or no, complications! It all depends. Tree removal can cost between $150 and $1,500. With a range like that, it’s best to get an assessment for an accurate estimate.

All our work begins with a consultation. That way we can get a feel for the size and shape of the tree, what kinds of dangers there might be, and what kind of property we’ll be working on. When we have it all figured out, we’ll be able to give you an accurate quote and a price break down. Our upfront and honest approach means you never end up paying for extras that you weren’t expecting!

The Four Hardest Trees to Remove in Detroit

One of the best parts about living in Detroit is the wide variety of native and imported trees we’ve got in the area. Variety is the spice of life, and the trees we share space with in this beautiful city give it a lot of character—not to mention a shady refuge when the weather gets hot!

With nearly 20 years of experience as an arborist, you can bet all of us at Big Dave's Tree Service have seen our fair share of rare and exotic trees. But some of the hardest to remove are those that grow naturally right here in Michigan!

If you have any of the following species in your backyard, it’s best to contact an arborist for tree removal, rather than trying to fell the tree yourself.

1. Honey Locust Tree

Anyone wondering why the honey locust tree, known as Gleditsia triacanthos, gives professional arborists a hard time only needs to take a quick look at the trunk.

The honey locust is also known as the thorny locust. Why? Well, you guessed it. These trees have scary thorns growing out of their branches. These thorns can be up to four inches long, and yikes, they sting like crazy.

In fact, scientists think that these thorns evolved to help protect the trees from ancient animals that wanted to munch on them, which explains why the thorns grow so high up. Useless against deer, but great against tree cutters and mammoths!

2. Osage Orange Tree

This tree has some of the hardest wood we’ve ever seen in our years in the tree removal industry. A cord of it can weigh up to 4,000 pounds, putting a lot of strain on any human or machine that dares to take it on.

A fun fact: The osage orange is also named the bodock tree—from the French bois d’arc, meaning ‘wood of bows’. When French colonists first landed in what is know the US, they were amazed at how durable this wood was—perfect for making durable bows and arrows.

A pioneer’s gain—an arborist’s nightmare! Don’t try to cut this one down yourself.

3. Eastern White Pine

The wood of the eastern white pine tree, or pinus strobus, is easy to cut. So why does this tree give professional tree removal companies in Detroit such a hard time?

Because it secretes a messy, sticky resin in the summer months. Imagine climbing a tree in your safety gear and having your uniform stick to the branches as you try to scale it! Gross. While it’s not as dangerous to cut as some of the others, it sure isn’t fun.

4. Shagbark Hickory

Even hearing the name ‘shagbark hickory’ gives us nightmares. Unlike some of the others on this list, this plant is 100% native to Michigan. So why is it so difficult for a Detroit-area tree removal company to take down?

Well, the bark is sectioned in plates that are almost like armor. So it’s really hard to ‘spike’ the bark and to get a good foothold when you climb. What’s worse is that the bark also can drop off in entire plates, making it super dangerous to climb, even for professionals.

Three Important Things to Consider Before Tree Removal

At Big Daves Tree Service, we are proud to serve the businesses and homeowners in the Detroit area. We believe that it is the DIY ethos of this city that makes it such a great place to live in and is also what separates our home from other major urban centers across the United States. That being said, when it comes to certain tasks like tree removal, it really is best that you leave it to the professionals.

While it is true that tree removal may often appear simple and straightforward, that fact of the matter is that it is dangerous and has the potential to be very costly if executed incorrectly. With that in mind, here are three tips that we at Big Daves Tree Service always adhere to very closely when completing a tree removal job here in Detroit.

  1. Underground Hazards: If your property requires the removal of a tree stump, then it is essential to check for buried cables, sewerage pipes and gas lines that may end up being damaged as part of the root restructuring process. Thankfully for you, at Big Daves Tree Service we guarantee that all the work we undertake carefully protects against these dangers and hazards.
  2. Proximity to Your Home: When removing a tree that is too close to your Detroit home, it is important to take extra care to properly remove any overhanging branches that may end up seriously damaging your home’s structural integrity. What many people don’t realize is that even small branches are heavier than they look.
  3. Overhanging into Neighboring Properties:At Big Daves Tree Service, we always make sure to check all relevant municipal bylaws when removing part of a tree that overarches into a neighbor’s property.
  4. The Safe Tree Removal Company

    There is no doubt about it, tree removal is dangerous. But with the right tools and enough precautions, it is possible to do it safely. At Big Dave's Tree Service, we always put safety first. We perform multiple safety checks at each interval of the service. From the initial assessment to the cuts to the removal—nothing is left unnoticed. By double and triple checking all our calculations, we ensure that no one and nothing gets damaged during the removal.

    Of course, it’s about our own safety too! We value the security of all our employees and take every precaution to protect them. We believe safety is everyone’s responsibility. And as an employer, we protect the safety of our team. Combine this with our insurance, and you’re looking at one of the safest tree removal companies in the region.
